Follow Nick Cave to the red light district in Jubilee Street (NSFW)

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Follow singer Nick Cave and director John Hillcoat on a somewhat seedy journey into what looks like the Reeperbahn or on of the more dimly lit alleyways of Amsterdam’s red light district. In this new and slightly NSFW music video for Nick Cave’s Jubilee Street, director John Hillcoat transforms Ray Winstone into a rather distressingly sad older gentlemen calling on ladies of the night for a good time.

Winstone takes a shine to one lady in particular and continues to return to her night after night, kissing her ankles and worshipping her like a Goddess. Put Nick Cave’s swaggering, heart-wrenching tones over these smokey, dimly lit scenes and you’ve got yourself a near-perfect music video.
